As promised guys, here are the picture from our yogic love get-together from last weekend.
I don’t have more pictures but then the evening went on to eating, singing, drumming and Sat sang well into the wee hours of the am. So much thanks to the Yoga Sanctuary for such a wonderful evening.
And now in true french style, we are going for our summer holidays in…1, 2, 3 hours time:-). Everything has a slow down to it in France during the month of August and in Paris this is very evident too. Shops close down and everyone has a sticker in front of their doors saying, “closed for the summer”. Everything comes to a pause leading to a full-on, energetic and revived beginning in September. They even have a name for it, it’s called La Rentrée (drumroll), the Return. It sounds very dramatic doesn’t it? But of course, ‘zis iz France’
So anyway, we will be going on a budget holiday and spending some time in Bordeaux, firstly camping in Ben’s grandmother’s garden and then onto to the island Ile de Ré (a place of no cars just bikes) where we will also be camping. This is my first time ever camping so we will see how it goes. Typical Nigerians do not go around sleeping in tents…hehehe. I remember telling my sister and she was like, “what the hell are you doing outside when you can be inside and on a bed!” and she’s like, Aijay, you’re crazy and I say ’tis not me, ’tis Ben! :-P. But I must say it’s nice to have this man introduce me to this way of holidaying. It’s gonna be cheap, cozy, raw and what’s more, we’re going to be close to mommy Nature so I have the feeling that this foodie is going to be loving all the new feelings of living wild…afterall it’s all but natural, no?
Ok guys, I’m off to do final packing, shower, put some clothes on this body and then we’ll head off to the train station for this adventure. I’ll be seeing you all beginning of September to continue on FreeFlowFoodie. Thank you for coming back again and again to read me.
À Bientôt et bisous à tous.
Love Love Love to your hearts,
